We learn that the EU wants yet more of our money to expand its budget still further. Apart from dealing with the financial mess left by Gordon Brown we are also expected to bail out Ireland, Greece and Portugal – maybe also Spain and who knows what else afterwards? In addition pressing problems facing us are unable to be addressed because of EU directives.
In out last major referendum in 1975 I campaigned and voted to stay in the EEC. I remained of that opinion until the days of Delors.
I now question whether we can reform this organisation while ruling out the possibility of leaving it and the day is fast approaching when we must bite the bullet and consult the people on whether they wish to stay in or not.
